STICK SIZE: 5A
I began playing drums at the age of 7. I started attending a music school in my hometown Trnava. My teacher was one of the country’s best drummers, so during every lesson, he taught me how to express myself through drums. I fell in love with drumming 11 years ago and I still love it. Over the years I had been endorsed by Drummers Unity, ‘ED, and Tulaj fashion brands. My playing has been influenced by countless amazing drummers such as Denis Chambers, Steve Gadd, Michel Skacel, Marcus Gilmore, JD Beck, and others… After 4 years of drumming, I started playing with a school jazz band called “Dixik”. I also played in our church in my hometown. My main project is a band called “Rods”. The band was formed in 2018 alongside my friends Jakub Slaninka (Guitar/Vocals), Šimon Vretenička (Guitar), Michal Chorvatovič (Keys), and Robert Kuracina (Bass). We started playing worship music. After a year, we started playing gigs and since then we have played all around Slovakia. In 2022, we also started doing ministry in prisons in Slovakia and Czech Republic. We are going to release our first EP in 2023. I am really glad that the worship community in Slovakia is very generous and encouraging toward bands like us. More famous bands such as Timothy or Lamačské chvály gave us an opportunity to support them at their concerts.
WHY DO YOU PLAY COLLISION?
I play size 5A. My favorite thing about Collision brand is that they support drummers starting their careers and want to help them in their journey. Collision brand is a brand that has great values and wants others to grow. They are helping develop their artist’s projects and collaborations with other artists. I would recommend Collision Drumsticks because of their durability, flexibility, and wood quality.
